- Narration sounds every bit as real and intentional as you could wish! Review by AudioFile Magazine
Robin Miles delivers an entrancing narration of the first book in Moore’s new series, featuring African-American teen Yasmin Peace. Miles portrays Yasmin’s struggles with puberty and with recent losses in her close-knit family, especially the recent suicide of her brother. Differentiation of all the characters is one of Miles’s strong points, and she also takes care that listeners empathize with Yasmin, who feels the necessity to forsake her tomboy ways and take care of her family. Convincingly depicting Yasmin’s strong relationship with God, Miles makes clear what is at the heart of this young woman’s ability to meet these coming-of-age challenges. Overall, Miles’s narration sounds every bit as real and intentional as the author—and listeners—could wish. J.E. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2011]

- Great for preteens/ young teen girls Review by bp
Thank you to the christianaudio (http://christianaudio.com) Reviewers Program for providing this audio book to me for my honest review.
I listened to Finding Your Faith by Stephanie Perry Moore. This is volume 1 in the Yazmin Peace series.
This is a story of a girl, Yazmin Peace, who is growing up and dealing with many challenges that are compounded in her family because her father is in jail and her older brother recently took his own life. Yazmin learns that when she turns to God, He is there and cares about what is going on in her life. It is a story of friendship and faith.
The narrator, Robin Miles, did a marvelous job reading this book. She was easy to understand, and she really did a good job in capturing the attitudes and various characters as she read. I recommend this book to preteens--younger teenage girls.
Have a day of blessings!
